LES SOINS DES AMAZONES | ANNIE BAILLARGEON
From November 4th to December 9th, 2023 - Vernissage : Saturday, November 4th, from 1:30 to 5:30 pm.
Make-up, masks, invention. Images circulate before our eyes, on our screens. They creep, tentacular, into our lives, our bodies, our desires. They don’t lie. They reveal nothing. They fascinate. They are perfect. Baillargeon’s wacky, sometimes funny and often disturbing aesthetic is a reflection on the plasticity of the female body. In the form of a self-fictive experiment, the artist invites us to consider different ways of producing a body, in order to counteract the female imagery that digital media and consumerist culture convey. For the duration of an exhibition, she becomes one of the hybrid creatures that populate our news feeds.
